Once it was illegal to unlock your cell phones..The White House agrees with the 114,000+ signature for the petition who believe that consumers should be able to unlock their cell phones using third party vendors like without risking criminal or other penalties.

This is particularly important for secondhand or other mobile devices that you might buy or receive as a gift, and want to activate on the wireless network that meets your needs -- even if it isn't the one on which the device was first activated. All consumers deserve that flexibility.
